Sade’s ‘Stronger Than Pride’ To Be Released On Limited Edition 180g Vinyl LP
“A sublime, enduring classic…Sade’s timeless masterpiece.”
Camarillo, CA – Music aficionados worldwide are buzzing with excitement over the release of Sade’s ‘Stronger Than Pride’ on limited edition 180g vinyl on Marshall Blonstein’s Audio Fidelity. In 1988, three years after leaving their fans begging for more, Sade released their third studio album, ‘Stronger Than Pride’, one of their best works ever. An international hit that lit-up the Pop, Jazz and R & B charts.
The platinum selling album includes sensual Brazilian bossa nova inspired acoustic material as well as three Billboard charted singles – the #1 smash “Paradise,” “Nothing Can Come Between Us” and “Turn My Back On You.”
On ‘Stronger Than Pride’, probably Sade’s most stripped down and sparse album, the band creates the perfect groove for romance and fulfills the promise of their stunning debut by continuing a sense of sophistication and understated elegance, two hallmarks of the Sade sound. Sade’s singing is exquisite.
‘Stronger than Pride’ exudes a greater confidence than the first two records, the talented band no longer has anything to prove. Stuart Matthewman on guitar and sax, Paul Spencer Denman on bass and Andrew Hale on keyboards are strong musicians/composers with distinctive character, the perfect vehicle for Sade’s mature, lush vocal lead.
Sade offers cool composure… a unique sound that infuses Soul, Pop, Contemporary Jazz and a little Middle-Eastern flavor. It’s impossible to separate the allure of this sultry music from the persona of the woman singing it, for Sade truly is a femme fatale of mythic dimension.
“…brilliant, exceptional, amazing and original – a warm and blissful pop-flavored modern jazz treasure.”

Here’s the latest chart from Paul Resnikoff at Digital Music News: projected U.S. vinyl music sales for 2013, based on first-half data from Nielsen Soundscan. This is no longer a fad:
The BBC reported in April that the surge has been driven by the confluence of artists releasing exclusive material through the medium, and its growing popularity among 18-24 year-olds (there’s a chicken-and-egg element to this).
College-aged buyers have also expressed a desire to keep record stores in business, the BBC said. And Pitchfork’s Mark Richardson says there’s a commonly held belief — not entirely accurate, it turns out — that LPs always sound better than CDs.
Resnikoff notes they still comprise a tiny chunk of overall music sales, though one that seems to be growing larger every year.
Also an interesting contrast with his chart from this past week showing music downloads are way down:
